Change Management Server in Client Security

Hello everyone,

 

Is there a way to change the management server hostname/IP configured in Client Security?

Maybe a script? Registry key? Configuration file? Command prompt?

 

Thank you in advance

    Hopefully it contains answer to your questions.

  • Hi Vad,

     

    Thank you for your reply.

    Couldn't find anything useful in the link, the aim here is just see if there is a way to change the Management Server IP or hostname configured on a client acting with a script, changing a config file or registry key.

     

    Thank you

  • Hi,

     

    that is not possible. Two options:

     

    1. Setup a new policy server and import the database and key from the old one. Change the policy on both servers and let it point to the  new server
    2. Setup a new policy server and install the clients via push installation over the existing installation.

    BTW - Siltanen's post shows perfectly what one have to do ...

     

    How many clients you need to change? BTW - in my opinion it is best to use full qualified domain names instead of ip addresses. It comes much more handy when you have to change something.
